Is Now The Right Time To Ask For A Pay Increase?
Over this last year has your job increased in times of its remit and responsibilities? Have you found that you are taking on additional activities but yet your pay has not changed? Is the frustration of doing more for the same amount of pay beginning to wear on you and there is a sense of resentment creeping in? However, then you look around you and friends and family members are being furloughed or even made redundant and you start to feel ashamed for being ungrateful?
When it is ok to ask for a pay review and what should you consider when putting your request forward?
How do you virtually network to develop your career?
People can be a great source of support when we are faced with uncertainty when we find ourselves working in unfamiliar settings and circumstances. People can be instrumental in finding our next career move and helping us make the transition, but how do we achieve networking for our career development when we find ourselves working from home?
Meeting colleagues in the coffee queue, connections by chance, listening to colleagues across the desk, all those ad-hoc meetups have been placed on hold as we enter our third lockdown here in the UK. Many people are once again forced to work from home which makes the building or expanding of our support networks more challenging. So how do you virtually build a community raising your profile and exploring potential career opportunities?
